What is Recyclable?

There are 7 recycling depots in the Powell River area that include 2 on Texada Island.  Each depot accepts the standard ‘blue bin’ items for recycling.  For a comprehensive list of accepted items, visit Recycle BC or click here for a condensed printable version.

Let’s Talk Trash has been working on bringing more recycling to the regional district rural recycling depots (includes all depots except Augusta Recyclers).

New items recently added:

  • Ziplock and garbage bags
  • Pens, felts, markers, highlighters, mechanical pencils (any plastic writing tool)
  • Batteries & natural cork
  • Town Centre Depot has additional collection streams for small household appliances and cookie and cracker overwrap packaging.
